Hello there and welcome or welcome back to my blog!
One of my favorite things I used to do after work was to go to the nail salon to get my nails done. I didn't do it all the time, but when I did, it made me feel exquisite and relaxed.
A fun thing you can do to give yourself a little pampering is to do your nails at home! You can use regular nail polish and a top coat (like I used to do before going to the salon), or you can learn to do your own dip powder, gel, or acrylic nails right from your home.
The photo above was taken before quarantine as some of my photos are. I didn't do my nails in this photo. I actually had them redone after this as I was unhappy with them. I just like this photo.
I've put together a list to create your own nail starter kit below featuring all the tools you'd need for a basic at home nail salon experience. As I write this, I haven't yet purchased any of these tools to try, but I do have some of them in my cart to attempt my own at home nail salon experience soon. All of these products are from Amazon.
If you're interested in a video or post on my own at home nail salon attempt, please let me know!
Here are the list of tools I've put together:
First, you'll need an LED nail dryer. This one is under $50, and it'll be perfect for quick drying those nail and dip powder sets for a long lasting manicure.
Next, you'll want a nail drill set. This one is also under $50 and comes with some starter tools as well! It's also small and portable for easy storage.
If you're interested in a dip powder kit that doesn't need an LED nail dryer, I'd recommend this one. It's a littler pricier, but it's got a few colors and the top coats you'll need as well.
This gorgeous polish set comes with 23 gel colors, so you won't get bored! It does need to be used with an LED/UV light such as the one mentioned above though.
Lastly, you'll need some remover.
If you've tried any of these products or plan to try them, please let me know!
Do you do your nails at home? What are your favorite products?
